About MeI live in Jackson Hole, Wyoming where I explore the deeper reaches of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem while also trying to raise awareness about light pollution and the importance of dark skies through photography and video.

Earlier this month I made my first drive back Gros Ventre Road east of Grand Teton National Park. Along the way were several pronghorn set against some amazing scenery, including these red hills which dominate the landscape much of the way.
Up in Gros Ventre Campground in Grand Teton National Park are a couple of Great Horned Owls with two owlets tucked away in a tree. The owlets naturally are drawing all the attention as they occasionally peek their heads out to see what all the commotion is about.
I’m not quite sure how long I was following this wolf in the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone National Park last week, but I’m sure it was close to two hours, give or take. This was from the second-to-last series of shots I got of her as she began heading up into the mountains.
Driving into Yellowstone I came across quite a bit of rain that cleared up upon reaching the Midway Geyser Basin. One of the first things I got out to photograph was a small herd of bison crossing the road just past the Midway Geyser Basin. Naturally they had some calves with them and two of them in particular already seemed to be getting along really well.
This wolf is the alpha male of the Canyon Pack, 712M, in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming as of May, 2009. He was found in the Lamar Valley.
Drive through the Lamar Valley on any given day of the year and you’re bound to come across a group of people keeping a close eye on one, or several, wolves at a time. Such was the case when I was on a brief solo road trip around northern Yellowstone driving through the Lamar Valley when I came across some wolf-watchers and the tourists that had gathered around them. A few dozen people were keeping a close eye on this alpha male as he went from one ridge to another with the occasional jaunt to the river.
